What is pressure washing?

When you use a hosepipe to clean something, you can create a stronger jet of water by putting your finger on the end.

Imagine if you could call up a powerful jet of water with just a push of a single button. That’s what you get when you use a pressure wash!

Pressure washers are made up of an electric or gasoline engine, a pump and a hose/nozzle that can deliver high-pressure water. By pulling the trigger, the water is released through the high-pressure hose/nozzle.

Pressure washing is very effective for cleaning all kinds of objects because of its high pressure and small jet.
